debate on gun reform, president obama is looking for support outside of washington d.c. yesterday at a police academy not far from the site of last year's theater shooting in colorado, the president focused on universal background checks saying his goal is not to take firearms away from their owners. >> the opponents of some of these common sense laws have ginned up fears among responsible gun owners that have nothing to do with what's being proposed and nothing to do with the facts. but feeds into the suspicion about government. if there are any folks who are out there right now who are gun owners and you've been hearing that someone has taken away your guns, get the facts. we're not proposing gun registration system. we're proposing background checks for criminals. >> one of the most fascinating parts of the speech was when he talked about michelle saying if i lived in a rural area and i lived on a farm, i would want a gun in my house. he was talking about this is not about keeping guns away from people. michelle was talking to the president. the president by extension understan

eilperin broke this story for the "washington post" and she joins me now. welcome to the newshour. >> thanks so much. >> so why is the obama administration doing this, putting these proposals out there? >> there are a couple of reasons. one is the fact that they are requiring vehicles to be cleaner in the years ahead. they've basically reduced greenhouse-gas emissions from these vehicles. and so you will see between 2016 and 2025, the vehicles are going to become much more efficient, get more pes -miles per gall. so one of the things automakers are asking for is for cleaner fuels because the sulfur in gasoline really affects the catalytic converter and makes it less efficient, results in more tailpipe emissions. so they actually have an incentive to have cleaner fuel. >> so i was going to say, it is interesting who is in favor of this, it is not just the environmental advocates, it's the car manufacturers. >> absolutely. the car manufacturers who already basically have to comply with these rules in california, which is a huge part of the u.s. market, have asked for uniformity. and

wrote a column in yesterday's "washington post" that said, quote, obama made an impassioned bid to revive prospects for gun control legislation but it's difficult to escape the conclusion that his efforts come too late, end quote. do you think then that there was ever a time line that was out there that he is not making or meeting at the moment? >> well, i'd love to be wrong but this is certainly the sentiment in town right now suggests nothing substantial is really going to occur in terms of background checks. it will be some watered down version of that if anything gets through at all. an argument could be made maybe this was inevitable and it wasn't going to work regardless, but it seemed that there was a window of opportunity right after the newtown massacre when the nra was back on its heels and the public opinion was really focused and it seemed that if things were brought to the congress right away then instead of studying it and allowing people to go home for the holidays, it's possible we would be in a better place than we are now. >> what's your thought about the time

the united states can learn. but, first, here's my take. it's a given that washington is broken. that the two parties seem incapable of coming together to get things done. but here is something president obama could probably do by himself that would be a signal accomplishment of his presidency, end the war on terror. for the first time since 9/11, an administration official sketched out a possible end point. jay johnson, the then general council for the pentagon saidine a recent speech to the oxford union that as the battle against al qaeda continues, there will come a tipping point that so many leaders of al qaeda and its affiliates have been killed and captures such as al qaeda as we know it has been effectively destroyed. at that point he said our efforts should no longer be considered an armed conflict. you might not realize it, but we're still living in a state of war. this is the longest period that the united states has lived in such a situation. longer than the civil war, world war one or world war ii. it grants the president and the federal government extraordinary authority, effecti
